Register a site for Clean Up Australia Day

THERE'S still time to register a site for Clean Up Australia Day and make a difference in your community.

Find an area near you that needs a clean up, register online and ask friends, family and groups to help out.

You will be sent packs of materials to get started, including rubbish bags, some gloves, registration information and promotional material.

Using the Clean Up Australia Day website you can also join an already registered clean up site.

Clean Up Australia day first began in 1990 with "average Australian bloke" Ian Kiernan, who had the simple idea to make a difference right there in his backyard, Sydney Harbour.

Three years later, after gaining the support of the United Nations Environment Programme, Clean Up the World was launched.

Clean Up Australia day is held on March 6.
